Pride Recommendations Book Tag

Hi friends, I am back with another Pride themed Book Tag! This one I found over on Hundreds & Thousands of Books and I thought it would be really fun to recommend some books in this tag! The tag was originally created by Ally Writes This Blog

Rules

  • Tag Ally @ Ally Writes Things so I can see your recommendations!
  • Give at least one recommendation for each of the prompts below
  • If you don’t have a recommendation, talk about a book you want to read
  • Tag as many people as you want!

A Book About Friendship

The Lumberjanes graphic novel series is really fun! I love how it is so diverse and has so many different discussions to be had within the fun fantasy setting. I would highly recommend this if you like graphic novels, fast paced light fantasy, and cute animals.

A Fast-Paced Book

Alien: Echo is a fast paced sci-fi horror about sapphic girls on a far off planet where Aliens (yes the kind from the movie) show up and well… you know. This book was so good and so fast paced. I adored it. It was gritty and scary and all the things I love in horror.

A Diverse Romance

Cheer Up! Love and Pompoms is the cutest graphic novel about ex-friends, now enemies, who are on a cheerleading team together and maybe they get close again. It’s just cute and sweet and I love it.

An Underrated Memoir

I don’t read a lot of memoirs, but How To Be Ace called to me and reading it was an incredible experience. I think it is definitely underrated and more people should absolutely read it.

A Non-Fiction Other Than A Memoir

I have yet to read Ace by Angela Chen, but it’s on my TBR and I really want to read it. Learning about desire, society, and the meaning of sex as the title proclaims is something that would be interesting. I’m all about learning to take apart societal beliefs.

A book with fewer than 10,000 ratings on Goodreads

If you’ve seen some of my other posts you shouldn’t be surprised to see Rare Vigilance by M.A. Grant somewhere on this list. It’s an indie book about a bodyguard and his charge with a secret. It’s a little dark and pretty fast paced. An amazing start to a series and needs more love for sure.

A book with an LGBTQ+ protagonist

Taproot is an adorable graphic novel about a gardener and a ghost. It’s the softest, cutest, warmest thing and it’s a graphic novel that I will be rereading time and time again.

A book with more than 500 pages

The Ruin of Kings is a huge chunk of a book. If you like high fantasy this is the one for you. I’m sure you’ve probably heard about it before but I think it’s a great first book in a series.

A translated book

I haven’t read My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness before but it’s one that I’ve seen around and has always seemed interesting. It’s like one of those older queer books that feel like a bit of a classic.

Book you want everyone to read

Sing Anyway by Anita Kelly is a sweet and steamy story about two people meeting at a karaoke bar and getting to know each other. I loved the mix of fluff and steam, and discussion of things like gender and gender dysphoria. I think everyone should read this short and sweet story.

A short story collection

I’m not the biggest short story collection reader, but Out Now: Queer We Go Again! is one that could be a really fun read. It’s all short stories about queer people from a number of different authors. This is the third in the “Out” series.

A book by a trans or non-binary author

Names for the Dawn by C.L. Beaumont was a book I read last year that I really enjoyed. It’s set in the wilderness with a park ranger at the center of the story. It’s sad and slow, and shows the complications that are relationships and situations, especially for trans people in the 1990s.
